A lot of this used to be boulder problems! It's amazing to me this all got bolted without regard to the past boulder problems having already been done. It's worth removing many of the bolts on this wall to get things back to what they were. Everything on the right side of the amphitheater, along the shorter wall with the horizontal had been bouldered before. Much of it by Steve Mallard and crew.

That being said, some of the taller lines were not climbed before and some only as TRs. John Hennings did a great job in bolting the taller lines. Feb 28, 2017

Jesse, contact Davin, Helke, or Hennings for the newer stuff. Cross Country Connection should have topos for the Amphitheater, the UW Outdoor Program has the Dark Side topos. There's also some stuff on rockclimbing.com. Nov 9, 2009
